Yeah I got XP MCE w/Vista Upgrade coupon to Home Premium. I have a question though...on the coupon since it is OEM it seems Microsoft thinks I'm an end user that bought it from another company. It says I need proof I bought a system myself, but it is a DYI build. Should I still try even w/o proof, or maybe mail reciepts for all my components?

when i sent in my stuff for the upgrade they asked for p.o.p and i sent them my reciept but i have a # where you can call moduslink and hopefully it will help you out.

It took me a while to find this but here is the same issue discussed right here at Tom's (TG Daily).

But, I was told, there is no way around that and I would need that receipt to upgrade.

You should be able to provide a receipt(s) for the components that you bought with your OEM XP.

i wouldnt be worried about saving $12 even since its causing you so much trouble

you are misunderstanding the coupon. the coupon is for a full upgrade to Vista... not $12 off the upgrade. in other words you get Vista for $12.

UPDATE

YES! It worked! I mailed them Fry's and Newegg reciepts for all the parts and wrote a note saying I built it myself, and just recieved the email that it got shipped and should arrive in 3 weeks!

Mine's already arrived, in 6 days! They said 3 weeks and it came in less than 1. I guess its all chance with MS. :wink:
